CEO of UV-Disinfection Company, a spin out company of Blue Ocean Robotics


At Blue Ocean Robotics we create and commercialise robots. We apply robot technology to create solutions and innovation for end-users and new businesses in partnerships.

In close collaboration with Odense University Hospital and the Danish Sygehuspartnerskabet we have developed the UV-Disinfection robot as an assisting tool in modern healthcare to limit readmissions, increase patient safety and limit the spread of vira like MRSA, E. Coli, and Mers-CoV. The solution is developed to fulfill national healthcare goals.

Bacteria, vira, and other harmful organic materials are a growing problem and are of significant cost to the modern healthcare sector. Cleaning and disinfection are costly operations, and patient safety can furthermore be severely damaged in cases of multi-resistant bacteria spread. The UV-Disinfection Robot ensures a cost-efficient and effective measure in limiting bacterial spread.

The UV-Disinfection Robot is a mobile disinfection robot that disinfects through a powerful UV-C light. It drives autonomously when called upon by hospital personnel. Its innovative AMR platform enables it to drive safely through corridors. The robot’s maneuverability enables removal of shadow effects and intense focus on specific infection hotspots such as tables, handles, and sinks. The robot can easily be utilized in production environments. The robot is developed to provide a user-friendly and flexible disinfection tool to support disinfection procedures in the modern healthcare and production sector.

The robot disinfection solution has been clinically approved to disinfect at log3 level. Approximate room treatment time is 10-15 minutes.
